Attorney General Schuette Denied Full Court Hearing on Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

courtesy Attorney General

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has been denied his request by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to have the full court hear his appeal in the state’s landmark gay marriage case.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Schuette had petitioned for an “en banc” hearing – which means full bench – instead of the standard three judge panel. However, the court determined Monday that no judge “favored” the suggestion and denied the petition.

Schuette had filed the petition on April 4th and argued that the full court should hear his appeal because the matter was of “exceptional importance” and one that should be resolved swiftly and before a full bench.

U.S. Judge Bernard Friedman declared Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional on March 21st.
